Largeman-Roth suggested getting about one cup of barley in your lunch a few times a week because, just like pumpkin seeds, it is going to help steady your blood sugar levels.

Largeman-Roth recommended a late afternoon snack to help keep your blood sugar stable as well, but also to help keep your serotonin levels high which will make you feel happier.
